Climb the corner to a large earthy ledge. The continuation corner is quite hard to start; finish by moving left under a small yew to a ledge below a larger tree equipped with an abseil point.

Ticklists: A Worthwhile Weekend at Wyndcliffe.

Found a couple of the bridge positions on the lower half were a little bit tenuous. There is some degree of polish moving up from the ledge, but found a really good pocket. The route requires loads of small/medium nuts and offsets, take two full sets unless you intend to multi-pitch. Topped out, it's easier than the abseil if you can find a way through the trees to the top path. Good route, but only one star for me.

Abseil tat and ring no longer in place around the big tree. One of the two large projecting branches is dead and therefore not safe as an anchor.

First climb in 7 months. Found it easy enough, some nice moves, loads of gear. The big tree at the top appears to be dead and there was no tat, so we walked off. This turned out to be easy enough, so we did the same with all the other routes today.

We thought the big branch used for the lower off worth a second look. It's fairly massive so probably sound enough, but there's no foliage on it (a few buds, though). Time to install a more extended lower off around the main trunk, perhaps?

Short hard section after the ledge. In contrast to many of the other VS climbs hereabouts, this doesn't need any big gear. In particular not two sets of large hexes. Next time...

First half is a joy. Polished & tricky to get off the halfway ledge - 5a? - tho maybe I'm not used to this style of climbing.... recommended.

Better than Klute I thought. I laid back on final crack without bridging on the coner, better and harder that way.
